Author: Stephanie Watson; Illustrator: LeUyen Pham

Meet Hector and Louie. They do everything together. They make funny drinks, they tell knock-knock jokes, and they even have a pet fish named Python.

Louie and Hector are the best friends in the universe, and they want to create a book to celebrate their friendship. But when a secret is revealed by Hector and a secret is revealed by Louis, it's time for a do-over!

Join in the hilarity as these two best friends discover the true meaning of friendship.
